Minecraft Modding: Java

Minecraft Modding: Java

Ages: 10-13*

Modding in Minecraft is one of the best ways for kids to learn computer science – students can use their imaginations and knowledge of Java (a widely used programming language) to create custom, unique mods.

Key Skills students will build in class:

  • Learn proper Java syntax to develop customized games and programs
  • Understand game design theory used in game development
  • Use various debugging techniques to test and perfect code
  • Learn how to manage a multiplayer server - including whitelisting players and developing your own commands!
  • Use variables, functions, and control structures to customize Minecraft

Each themed class below has a specific focus and can be taken in any order! Best of all, kids can test, play, and share their mods so the entire class can play together using their own Minecraft server.

Minecraft Modding: Java Bedrock

Students learn Java concepts to create their own personalized mods and minigames such as Spartan School, Epic Mods, and The Walls!
